Voices from the Great Pacific Northwest


Kate E Thompson


Kate E Thompson, a northwest author and historian, is writing her second novel, a coming of age story about a 19th century Danish girl who is sent to America to join the Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah. Kate’s research has led to many surprising revelations, including an unexpected side journey that’s taken her on a personal quest to find her ancestors and learn their stories.


Kate is fond of reading old diaries and letters and writes down catchy words and phrases from them. She makes handcrafted books, keeps detailed journals and a commonplace book. She stops at all bookstores, art galleries and historical museums.


Her third novel is about an 18th century Irish family and their pursuit of a better life which takes them to the West Indies and finally, to America.


Kate’s dog, Ali, a Goldendoodle, is her loyal writing companion.

Gwendolyn Van Hout Knechtel


Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, Gwen lived with her parents and sister on Java until age four when political unrest moved the family to the Netherlands. After fourteen months they immigrated to the United States, first to Oregon then to Washington. A graduate of Fairhaven College and Western Washington University, Gwen is a teacher and resides in western Washington with her husband and family.


Gwen celebrates daily the love of family, friends and creativity. Whether dancing down hallways, spontaneously singing or keeping connected with loved ones, beach time strengthens her through life’s journey. With a published story in Lembas for the Soul and a contributing author in New Halem Tales: 13 Stories from 5 NW Authors, she is currently working on DORM 1973.


Charles Thompson


Charlie loves the Oregon Coast, having lived and worked for several years at Scripps League Newspapers in Tillamook, Seaside, and Coos Bay. Most of his writing in those days consisted of columns, editorials and financial reports—so many financial reports.


Now with a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Washington, he has embarked on a very satisfying second career as the director of a healthcare initiative at Edmonds Community College. He still writes too many reports but he makes time to share a good story.


Charlie lives outside Mill Creek, Washington with his wife, daughter, two dogs and three cats. His interest in graphic design, photography and publishing technology combined with his creative art, writing and editing skills have fueled his most recent editorial adventure, TwoNewfs Publishing.
